Shiba Inu nears key support
Shiba Inu may be forming a tight bull pennant for a possible breakout followed by parabolic upside moves. “Nearest target will be $0.00002050, although with parabolic moves price could breach any resistance as long as buying momentum persists,” Bitrue analysts noted.
A bull pennant is a triangular flag shape that signals a continuation. At the time of publication, Shiba Inu was trading down 5.81% at $0.0000146. It remains 17% up weekly.
Shiba Inu’s price dipped to lows of $0.00001457 before slightly retracing. This is a hair above the $0.00001435 level, which marked a barrier confirmed in May. Shiba Inu seems to be in the process of converting this key level into support if the price sustains at current levels.
The relative strength index, a momentum indicator, might suggest that the Shiba Inu price might be poised for a short-term move. The indicator is currently above the 60 level, which suggests an edge to buyers in the meantime. If buyers emerge at current prices, the barrier remains at $0.000018 and above it at $0.000021. In the case of further declines, SHIB might find support near $0.000012.
